Shoulder Exercises for Mass
Barbell shoulder exercises are critical for packing on shoulder mass. The most critical of these exercises is the barbell shoulder press. The use of the barbell instead of dumbbell will allow for you to lift a bit more weight. This doesn’t come without risk. We’ve discussed warning signs before, but the number one rule to abide by when doing shoulder workouts that call for heavy weight is to stop at any sign of pain. On Daily Spot, some routines may include low-rep standing barbell shoulder presses. If at all during the sets you go from feeling 100% to thinking something may have tweaked (or even pushed in a wrong way) then stop what you’re doing and rest your shoulders. One of the biggest mistakes you can make in the gym is performing heavy exercises for mass, injuring yourself, and convincing yourself that it’s OK to keep lifting. Break. Recover. Come back in a few days or weeks after you’re feeling 100%.
Here are some barbell shoulder exercises you’ll see in Daily Spot routines:
